My Chosen Journey – HOPE

Good Morning!

The decision I made a few years ago is about a journey towards celebration of Christmas.


    Today I will light a candle HOPE.   This is not a ritualistic or necessary part of my Sunday.  It is part of personal prayer.    I light this candle and pray gently and led by the Spirit, I believe, that HOPE will touch the lives of all the needy, lost, lonely and questioning people of the world.    May HOPE arise in many hearts.  Hope for a better world.  Hope for a more loving and tolerant world BUT even more importantly than that will their hearts and lives be turned towards the source of ALL ETERNAL HOPE.   Will the people of God who celebrate the birth of the Saviour truly demonstrate that Divine HOPE as they journey forth.    Welcome to my journey.   As blogging folk you are all in my heart and a part of this 2016 journey.   Blessings and Love.

Keep living with eyes focussed above your circumstances.   Hoping for better.  A-men.




About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Many of the songs we used to sing, urged us on with Hope of Heaven. That will be eternal end, but for today I have hope. My hope is in Christ my Lord, and my confidence is that He will bring me to a “better” place in my journey here on earth until that Heavenly reward!

    Ironically, the day you published this post, my church lit the first advent candle, representing hope. Are you familiar with the lighting of the advent candles?
